start coming out here saturday morning. wendy, back to you. >> all right. going to be a big season, we hope. thanks, elaine. there are a number of new faces in that camp today. the skins just acquired josh wilson, ex-jets new york quarterback, clemmons, donte stallworth, jabbar gaffney, and defensive tackle, barry cofield. initially we heard that brandon stokley agreed to sign, but according to his agent, he has now changed his mind. the big story yesterday, of course, was not who is coming on to the redskins, but who is leaving. donovan mcnabb. they dealt their former quarterback to the minnesota vikings for a sixth round pick in next year's draft, and they could get another pick in the future based on mcnabb's performance in the coming season. >>> all right. what's it going to be like there out at camp and across our area? it's not looking real clear and crisp out there, tom, it's looking kind of gross. >> you don't want to be wearing a helmet and pads in temperatures around 100 degrees. that's what it's going to be like tomorrow. but today we've got a glorious summer day underway. t
and the one across the capitol, could make a big difference in the outcome of our future by cutting specific programs this week and next week. that's one rare thing you never hear in washington. everybody says you need to cut. when it gets down to talk about what you cut, nobody wants to come up with any cogent ideas because they don't want to take the political heat, because everybody program, no matter how well-intended and how inefficient, has those people who are going to fight for that program because there's money coming into the coffers for somebody. the other point that i would make is the reason we're anxious and the reason we're worried is that we've abandoned the very principles that our founders gave us that would keep us healthy. and that was the constitution and its enumerated powers section, which spells out very succinctly what was our responsibility and what was the states' responsibility. and so we have whole departments. one, for example, would be the department of education. that thomas jefferson said if you ever had the federal government doing anything on education, you
's why. big area of high pressure. there's a big strong upper ridge. this is just a heat pump that will continue. and the bad news is, this goes into at least thursday. in fact, jet stream guns up a little further into canada so that heat will be creeping up north as the ridge intensifies. we don't see this breaking down at least until the weekend. so the mid section of the country is going to continue to bake the northeast gets a little bit of a break as we head on into the next 72 hours. ann? >> all right, al, thank you so much. we'll get the rest of your forecast in a bit. >>> for now, to britain's deepening phone hacking scandal. this morning there are claims that journalists from other rupert murdoch's other papers were involve and the alleged target is former p.m. gordon brown. stephanie goss is in london with this. stephanie, good morning. >> good morning, ann. gordon brown does not mince his words when he spoke to the bbc this morning about rupert murdoch's papers me said those papers used people to gather information on known criminals. the allegations appearing in th

targeted, it's basically not a big deal, now he's realized what a catastrophic error of judgment that was because the woman that's replaced him on this inquiry, sue acres, is saying up to 4,000 people could have been targeted by the newspapers. >> what about the implications that this is not just the now defunct "news of the world," but other papers? >> yeah. i think this is really significant and really bad news for news international. it's no longer just confined to "news of the world," the paper that they closed down, realizing it had become toxic as a brand. it's now spread to "the sun" and "sunday times." both so far have not been shown to have used phone hacking, but they have been shown to use what, at best, slightly underhand techniques, at worst illegal activities to get information. "the sun" is maintaining it got the medical records without breaking the law. "the sunday times" saying there was a legitimate public interest in looking into gordon brown's bank details and so on on a tip, but there was some sort of corruption there or something which was all proved to be u

of the big things. after a decade of racking up deficits and debt, we need to get our fiscal house in order. in order to do that, both sides are gonna have to step outside of the comfort zone and make some political sacrifice. we agree we cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in history. we need to uphold the faith in credit of the united states. with the recovery that is still fragile and not producing the jobs we need, the last thing we can afford is the usual partisan game playing. congress will be any stronger position to focus on some of the measures i have party proposed by putting people to work rebuilding america's infrastructure or ipad system so that are innovators have a greater incentive to make new products. or making college more affordable. businesses that may be holding back, we'll have a greater confidence to invest and create jobs. i know we can do this. we can meet our fiscal challenge. that is what the american people sent us here to do. they did not send guard -- us to kick the problems down the road. they sent us here to work together.

a to b. >> vikrum? >> i think a big part of it is that you need to understand that social change, we don't wake up overnight and think like i'm going to change the world. just like you said that you want, or that you make this for any particular in other than for a class project. you have to realize even if you have, dream big torture. i'm sure, i didn't mean to don't wake up and think that you can't save the world. but know that that's not going to happen overnight. social change doesn't come overnight, but it does come and commitment. even by having good dialogues like this today. i know that sounds cheesy but think that's the first step because when you get those first job, i can only speak about kind of washington oriented jobs, but you might have tried we can best universities were really been the top of your class or feel that you are really, have a high aptitude and i grasp of issues but when you get there, you might feel downtrodden and say why am i not talking to the press right now about why we need a cap-and-trade legislation. realize that the change will come incrementally, b
, and i would say let's go back to basics. when you have a big problem, you go back to the basics where you have to start to solve a problem, and the basics are a budget. if we can agree on a budget, and, heck, i think we all agree that if we get one on the floor, there's going to be a lot of amendments. there's going to be a lot of amendments to a budget resolution. let's get started. let's use this week to produce a budget resolution, and let's start having the amendments about spending levels, about spending priority. that will be a way that we can start the process of determining if we can, in fact, lift the debt ceiling because there are significant cuts in the spending in this country that would show the rest of the world that is holding our debt as well as the american people who are living with this government and holding part of the debt that we're serious, that we are going to get our financial house in order, and we're going to do it with a budget resolution that cuts spending and sets priorities like every family and every business in this country are required to do, and mos

the discipline of the market place because their size, complexity and interconnectedness made them too big to fail under the resolution processes in place at the time. the expectation of a large financial companies enjoyed the implicit backing of the federal government allow the managers of the company to book short-term profits while ignoring the buildup of tail risk in here in a complex mortgage instruments they held. in the financial market chaos that followed the september 2008 bankruptcy of lehman brothers, the expectation of government support persistent important financial institutions, or sifis, became a really good government assistance to financial institutions took on a variety of forms. a total commitment of almost $14 trillion by the spring of 2009. direct assistance to the largest financial institutions easy to short-term crisis of confidence in the interbank market. and our financial system began to function again. the policymakers fail to effectively attack the root cause of the problem, which was the enormous backload -- backlog of unaffordable and underwater mortgage loan

tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 to the wealthy and big corporations, the so-called job creators, didn't create jobs in the private sector. indeed, only one million net new jobs were created between 2001 and 2009. all government jobs. the private sector reported minus 600,000 jobs. so much for giving tax breaks to the private job generators. some argue against all debt, but all debts aren't bad because all debts are not the same. a $50,000 gambling debt is bad because it has no return. the last decade shows that gambling on tax cuts for the rich to create jobs was bad. gambling on two wars and not paying for them was bad. gambling on a new prescription drug law that was unpaid for was horrible. and gambling on unregulated financial institutions that failed was bad. and they resulted in a housing market collapse, slow economic growth, high unemployment and huge deficits and debts, all bad. so i think we gambled enough on the theory that budget cuts and tax cuts generate private sector jobs and more taxes. the l-a-f-f-e-r is truly a laffer. republicans are right, we do have speaning prob
